It can accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph in 5.7 seconds. It offers a combined claimed range of up to 840 km and offers a EV only claimed range of 100 km.
It comes equipped with BYD’s intelligent drive system with advanced safety features like adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, lane departure collision warning, emergency lane change assist, automatic emergency braking, rear cross collision braking, intelligent navigation system, forward collision warning, rear collision warning, rear cross collision warning, and more.
